New Blog Header

I have been thinking lately that it is time
to change my blog header
give it a fresh new look
apart from a few more ideas

and so I came up with this fabric collage.

The image is one of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's -
"My Lady Greensleeves".

The collage has been built upon a foundation piece of vintage
upholstery fabric salvaged from some old rocking chairs
which fell apart gracefully at home
how lucky was I to be able to recycle this gorgeous piece
(also here is some of the hessian webbing containing the springs
of the chair).

The piece measures approx 12" x 20" and is hanging from a fashioned piece of
copper through eyelets.
I am considering selling this hanging so if anyone is interested in
the purchase of this
please email me at

I thought I might also share this Birthday Card which I have just finished

for a very dear friend of mine.  Our friendship spans 44 years.

The fabric I used here I have owned for at least 15 years or more and is really showing signs of being tattered and torn but the rose is oh so
gorgeous and I know my friend, Sue, will treasure it.

This card along with the gift which I am still working on
will accompany myself and Jeff
when we will be travelling
interstate for a week on Monday to Adelaide to visit my dear Dad who is not as well as
you and I at 91 years.

This little journal mentioned in my last post
has now been sold!
I hope that the weekend and the coming week will be filled
with lots of happiness and creative hours.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments regarding the passing
of ma Cherie.  We are feeling more positive about life without her
Love, Suzy xxx

  15. Your header is lovely dear Suzi and of course you know how much I love all your creations so as usual you take my breath away with your talent. I was so sorry to hear about your loss of your sweet baby. I have been there and I know the feelings you are experiencing. It is one of those devastating moments in our lives, no matter how much we might think we are prepared, we never are. My heart goes out to you. I'm sorry I didn't find out about it earlier as my head has been buried in the AG event.

  24. Love your new banner and what a gorgeous piece you have made. You are so talented.

  25. So sad to hear about loosing your Cherie, I've only just heard. When we lost our first dog we were bereft but loved our new dog, in his memory at first then of course, for himslf.

    Your new header piece is just wonderful. I sold 2 of my first 'lacy' pieces in the last couple of months & that & your beautiful piece inspires me to make more ;)

  26. Every single picture you post has me mesmerized. Your pieces are breathtaking.

    I just saw your post about Cherie and I'm sending you and your family good vibes. The hurt never really goes away but it does get better!

    I don't recall seeing anything on your blog about how you bind your pages - any chance you could do a quick tutorial on your method?

  27. Love your new header, Suzy! Your collage is really breathtaking.Wonderful work! As usual! :-)
    Hugs, Viola

  28. Wow your fabric collage is stunning!

  29. Suzy,
    What an inspirational post! I love the fabric hanging collage. The colors are beautiful! I'm sure it will sell immediatly. I am really interested in the cards. I just mailed a gift & needed a card with it. It's funny I can make pretty collages & art quilts but when it comes to cards I'm lost. Yours are as precious as the gift itself. I love visiting here, so much beauty! Lisa

    No wonder your journal sold - I would love it!!

  31. Your new collage is gorgeous. What an inspiration to see such beautiful fiber art. You're really taking the art to an entirely new level.

    Hugs, Jackie
